Maximum Insecurity: A Doctor in the Supermax

by William Wright M.D. 


After three decades as a successful ear surgeon, William Wright, MD is bored beyond belief. He dabbles with retirement, but finds idleness infuriating. He has to do something.

Then he sees an ad for a doctor’s position from the Colorado Department of Corrections at a supermax prison. Now that, he thinks, would be different. His wife has some thoughts on the matter too. She thinks her husband just lost his mind and is on a collision course with a prison shiv.

After his first day on the job, he wonders if she wasn’t onto something. His first patient is an arrogant, callous youth convicted of five cold-blooded murders. Dr. Wright has to steel himself not to bolt.

Nothing prepares a doctor for life at the Colorado State Penitentiary. He quickly discovers treating maximum security convicts is like treating recalcitrant murderous four-year-olds. Always willing to threaten their doctors with bodily harm, they are more interested in scamming drugs than treatment.

Told with self-depreciating humor and scathing wit, Maximum Insecurity describes Dr. Wright’s adventures practicing medicine in a supermax correctional facility without, he’s glad to say, getting killed even once.


Maximum Insecurity Reviews


I've been in correctional care for 6+ years and this book had me laughing, nodding, and commiserating. Great read for anyone in correctional healthcare or who's considering it! - Eric N Wells 

Very few books have the ability to be informative, terrifying, and hilarious, but Maximum Insecurity and the author's all-too-real experiences working in a Supermax prison certainly qualify. This is an excellent read. - David Desmond

An accurate and light hearted account of what it is really like to work in correctional healthcare. A wonderful book, I couldn't put it down. A "must read" for anyone... - Diane J
